Building or Maintaining


The construction business was all about specializing, either in the new or in maintenance. It was the tension between maintaining the past, or building a new future which all began in the present. Oh the tension. Construction was all about money supply. Mine. And what a bank was willing to give me.

The construction business of a life: College grads never had it laid out quite like this, choosing between the new or in maintenance. Ah the future. Your future, and the tension. What were you going to construct. Living in a new way or buying into customs. Even in the age of technology.

The conversion to the digital was postponed this week.

Trying to just maintain. The past

Over the past 4 week nights, there sure has not been much traffic in St. Paul. When I passed along the observation, a commuter said his trip from Minneapolis to suburban St. Paul that takes 20 minutes on a Saturday of late has taken only 30 minutes in rush hour. There was something going on all around us.

Paying for it. The past. The new. What a bank was willing to give this generation? What was affordable? What was gonna be maintained? There was something going on all around us.
